Create new geocoder "stack". You may for example want to create a new geocoder which first checks geofences, then POIs and as a final resort GpsGate and/or Google.

Use POIs for geocoding

If you are a developer take a look at WebMap Platform Kit for integration of not supported map services.

How to integrate a geocoder over HTTP/XML

The "AppGeocoder" is a useful tool when setting up a geocoder using POIs and geofences.

If you don't find the map / geocode support you need, please contact us here:
